Commit to Mental Health Event


Odessa College invites the public and all OC students to “Commit to Mental Health,” a come-and-go event on Tuesday evening, March 7, 2023 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Saulsbury Campus Center.

The public service wellness event will include guest speakers, community groups, campus resources and more.

Guest speakers will address the following topics:

5 p.m. – Stress Relief and Coping Mechanisms – the Odessa College Psychology Department
6 p.m. – Talk Saves Lives – the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention
7 p.m. – Mental Health Effects of Domestic Violence – The Crisis Center of West Texas


The goal of the event is to make the commitment to improve your mental health, and to provide information and resources that can help if a person may be depressed or struggling. Getting help before things become an issue can also help the person and those close to that person. Everyone needs someone to talk to in a judgement free space from time to time.

The event is free to the public and OC students.
